Last Saturday’s Holy Trinity Pantry love was multiplied by a million when Zoe, on behalf of Junior Troop 60319, appeared at their door, delivering Girl Scout cookies for Mission Center guests.
Thank you, our beloved and faithful partners of 60319, for once again putting your compassion into action on behalf of our neighbors.

A galaxy is a huge collection of gas, dust, and billions of stars and their solar systems, all held together by gravity. Make your own unique Galaxy necklace using a few items you have at home or can pick up at your local dollar store. Search Google images for inspiration.
• Ribbon Neck Cord
• Metal Tray
• Glass Cabochon
• Strong Adhesive like ModPodge, E6000 or Crazy Glue
• Assorted Nail Polishes/Glitter (Pinks, purples, whites, blacks or whichever color suits your taste)
1 Get your supplies together.
2 Visualize how you want your galaxy to look. You will be using layers to build your art starting from the front of the glass to the back. Whatever color you use first will be in front of your glass. Start with clear glitter for stars and dust. Let dry.
3 Begin creating you nail polish design on the glass cabochon. You can use light brush strokes or make patterns with a toothpick. Allow polish dry in between coats if you do not want it to blend. You can make interesting blends by mixing different color polishes with a toothpick while wet.
4 When you have acheived the desired look for your piece, let it dry completely.
5 Paint the back of the glass with a dark color to fill any gaps.
6 Attach glass to try with glue. Let dry. Do not get your necklace wet. It is not waterproof.
7 Add chain and show off your colorful galaxy!

During these difficult and uncertain times, I have been trying to spend the last few weeks on what I like to call “Pops of Positivity”. Since I cannot keep you posted on events that are going on, and many of us have been feeling disconnected without these events I think it important to focus on the good, even more than ever. Each week in my column, I’ve been trying to highlight any story from our wonderful community that highlights little moments, or Pops!, of positivity when so much negative is surrounding us. If you have a “Pop of Positivity!” you would like to share during quarantine, please email me at email@example.com or call 845-706-9582.
